ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!
So who has our back, and who is protecting us from all these toxic substances we are putting into our body daily – (BY THE WAY – WHITE SUGAR IS THE IDEAL CANCER FEEDING FOOD ALONG WITH WHITE FLOUR)
Well that would be the FDA in the US – CFIA in Canada – MHRA in the UK, TGA in Australia …
So here’s what the FDA considers its responsibility:
FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.Dec 7, 2015. What We Do – FDA www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/WhatWeDo/
BOY DOESN’T THAST MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD!!
I think they should say they protect big corporations to ensure those areas of the economy continue to grow and thrive financially. Ensuring the safety of our health and wellness is a secondary by product! After all we have no shortage of people – BUT – jobs well that can be a serious challenge!

OK that’s my rant – now let’s cut to the facts and why white sugar – or any man made refined sugar for that matter is toxic to your system. Read on …..
Why Sugar Is Toxic To The Body
Article Written by William Dufty
In 1957, Dr. William Coda Martin tried to answer the question: When is a food a food and when is it a poison? His working definition of “poison” was: “Medically: Any substance applied to the body, ingested or developed within the body, which causes or may cause disease. Physically: Any substance which inhibits the activity of a catalyst which is a minor substance, chemical or enzyme that activates a reaction.”1 The dictionary gives an even broader definition for “poison”: “to exert a harmful influence on, or to pervert”.
Dr. Martin classified refined sugar as a poison because it has been depleted of its life forces, vitamins and minerals. “What is left consists of pure, refined carbohydrates. The body cannot utilize this refined starch and carbohydrate unless the depleted proteins, vitamins and minerals are present. Nature supplies these elements in each plant in quantities sufficient to metabolize the carbohydrate in that particular plant. There is no excess for other added carbohydrates. Incomplete carbohydrate metabolism results in the formation of ‘toxic metabolite’ such as pyruvic acid and abnormal sugars containing five carbon atoms. Pyruvic acid accumulates in the brain and nervous system and the abnormal sugars in the red blood cells. These toxic metabolites interfere with the respiration of the cells. They cannot get sufficient oxygen to survive and function normally. In time, some of the cells die. This interferes with the function of a part of the body and is the beginning of degenerative disease.”2
Refined sugar is lethal when ingested by humans because it provides only that which nutritionists describe as “empty” or “naked” calories. It lacks the natural minerals which are present in the sugar beet or cane.
